Extravagant weddings are discouraging believers from Holy Matrimony – Bishop tells believers

Frills and expenses lately have become the order of the day when couples are exchanging marriage vows.

Larger locations, Big reception tables and chairs, food, more cake and more of everything that costs more money always top the agenda of every wedding couple. 

However to a Spiritual leader like the Bishop of The Diocese of Nebbi church of Uganda,  Rt.Rev.Pons Ozelle Awinju,  high commercialization of the sacrament of holy matrimony seems to be discouraging to many people.

 He noted with concern that many willing believers with less financial muscle get discouraged upon witnessing how their fellows are spending extravagantly on their wedding ceremonies.

The Bishop made this appeal recently whilst presiding over the abrupt wedding ceremony of Mr Innocent Onega and Juliet Onega at Zombo Town Parish church of Uganda During the conclusion of his pastoral visits across the Diocese.

The couple entered the sacrament of holy matrimony without any prior preparation. 

Many people reason that the rise of industrial production and commercial marketing transformed the way that well-to-do people conduct their wedding ceremonies.
In the past, couples would organize a simple wedding ceremony where spending lavishly on rides, wedding cakes, expensive gowns, and public address systems amongst others were not a  priority.
